'From our studio & showroom in Eindhoven, we fulfill a connecting role between designers, makers and buyers. In doing so, we always go through 5 important steps.
Collecting is the second step in our process: in the role of curator, we decide whether or not something will go into the Vij5 collection. This choice is very personal: we only include products in the collection that make our hearts beat faster. In this episode, we explain the intention with which we make our choices.

We want to have a good 'click' with both the designer ánd the product. Many of the collaborations under our brand start as a friendship. It's especially fun to work together! Sometimes things go wrong during the process, and then we have to be able to find solutions together.
We can be just as excited (or sometimes more excited) about someone else's product than when it comes from our own hands. The Vij5 collection reflects our personal taste in design. We love pure, durable and honest materials. Clear lines and attention to detail is what characterizes our products.'
